Colorado native Clare Dunn has hit music city wide open. Her current single "Get Out" is catching fire all over the place. She's gorgeous, talented and has hit the scene right on time. Country music is lacking female artists and Clare Dunn sure has a lot to bring to the table. After signing a publishing deal with BMG/Chrysalis, she's only looking forward from here on out.
1. At what age did you know you wanted to pursue music?
I think I was around 10 or 11
2. What artists did you listen to growing up?
Oh man everything! My dad loved Chubby Checker, Percy Sledge, Bob Seger. My mom loved George Strait & The Eagles and I listened to whatever my sister listened to. I found The Rolling Stones, Keith Urban, Mariah Carey, Eric Clapton, Lauren Hill, Whitney Houston…because of my background as a hip hop dancer I started listening to hip hop around middle school.
3. What artists are your favorite currently?
Keith Urban, Eric Clapton and all the ones mentioned above still.
4. If you could duet with any male artist, who would you pick?
Keith Urban. No doubt.
5. Do you have a favorite place to perform?
Nope. I've played just about every kind of venue imaginable, all the way from coffee shops to bars to arenas. I love each setting individually because they all offer different opportunities & elements for entertaining.
6. Do you have a favorite hang out spot in Nashville?
haha! My house. I'm never there so it's nice to just chill out when I get a chance.
7. If your life was a movie, what would the title be?
Dirt & Dreams

Make-up, sunglasses and chapstick.
10. Any new projects in the works for you? What can we expect from Clare Dunn in the future?
Putting more music out! We have an EP recorded(finishing up the record) that we've been working on whenever I'm off the road and just deciding which way we want to go releasing that music to the world. I'm continuing to be on the road playing shows with our friends Florida Georgia Line, Colt Ford, Will Hoge & more!!
